WP macros are intermittent

Hopefully someone here can give me an idea of what to check.
We have WP 10 macros sitting on a NetWare 6.5 sp6 server . Our edir is 8.7.3.9
The macros had worked fine up until about a month ago. Then they started to behave intermittently, working most of the time.
Rights are given through membership to the everyone group. All users are members and the group has read and file scan rights (always did).
The only thing that had changed on the server most recently was that we installed the latest SAV for NetWare 10.1.7. We have since uninstalled it completely from that server. We worked with Novell. The had me do packet traces with ethereal. It looks like the application is sometimes requiring read and write access to a macro then the next day it will only require the read right.
Is is totally intermittent. The macros work one day but stop working the next.
I've tried test groups, dsrepairs, removing a ton of 3rd party apps from a problematic workstation (I can't reproduce the problem on my workstation).

Muchos gracias for any help or ideas on what to check.

Our info:
WP 10 sp3
SAV corp ed 10.1.7
NW 6.5 sp6
edirectory 8.7.3.9
Windows XP SP2

Re: WP macros are intermittent

Generally, application problems on a workstation are more likely caused by
incompatibilities with the client than by the server itself. As such,
maybe the novell client forum
http://forums.novell.com/novell-product-support-forums/open-enterprise-server/oes-platform-independent/oes-client-windows/
is therefore a better place to get help on your issue.
In any case, the NDS can hardly be responsible for such issues and
therefore running dsrepair will hardly help in such a situation.
